Default Who smokes tobacco here?

After dealing with a few friends who are trying to to quit with varying levels of success, I was wondering how many here smoke. I'm not one of them. I tried it for a while when I was a teenager, but it did not agree with me. That nicotine is some powerful stuff.

Anyhow I was thinking about it and it is something that no one should really be hooked on. The damage takes time. I hate seeing old friends dealing with the long term consequences of smoking. It makes me sad.

Perhaps the level of support here could help some of those who do smoke quit for good.

Never have, never will. Some of my friends do and they hate themselves for it.

If by smoking you also include times when when you don't inhale, then yes, I've puffed a few times. Good taste. But no, I've never technically smoked a cigarrette, pipe, chewed it, or anything of that sort.

If second-hand smoke counts, then I've smoked maybe a million times. Mom and dad both on. Mom's been hooked for 40 years, but dad just smokes for the taste (never inhales). Grandma used to smoke until about a year or so ago (operation). Immediate aunt smokes. Uncle smokes. I have a big smoker family.

While I'm sure that not inhaling is better for you than getting it in your lungs it's still bad. Some of it still gets inhaled I'm sure. I know what you mean about second hand smoke. I've got a lot of that over the years for sure.

I have never tried smoking myself... I basically don't see the appeal.

Although, I have been offered it before on quite a number of occasions (as well as some 'not-strictly-legal' stuff) and turned it down on every occasion. I know that it's unlikely to get hooked off just one cigarette, but I have friends who actually did, and just that is enough to put me off.

Besides, it's too expensive. Money that could go towards better things in my opinion.

Nope, I've never smoked and I never will. I've never understand why people spend money on ruining their lungs. Then they expect us to fund their treatment when they get cancer

I tried once, but it felt like a handful of ashes in my mouth, It took me two days of continuously use of mouth wash to get rid of that taste.

I don't smoke, but people who do don't bother me so long as we aren't in a small room.

cigarettes are a waste of time, smoking is bad for your health so if you're going to do it, why not make it worth it. smoke weed instead but not too much.

I do smoke unobtanium. It's HEAVY, man. I had a bit of it back in '28, and I've been hooked for the rest of my life. Not cheap, I tell you (20 million a kilo), but man, it's like out of this world.

That's a whole different topic. Start a new thread for that. I started this thread to help anyone who might be wanting to quit and needs that little extra push.
